I am interrupting the list of books and movies that I need to review to tell you about something that is going on in the Dad-blogging community. It is the "Mentally Sexy" movement/contest. What is "Mentally Sexy", you ask? well, I will just let one of my brother fathers tell you. Please meet Reservoir Dad , an Australian husband, stay-at-home dad, and blogger. Reservoir Dad is the originator of the ""Mentally Sexy" concept and contest, and here is his definition:
"To me, the Mentally Sexy Man is one who takes responsibility in maintaining the passion in his relationship.
One of the greatest aphrodisiacs for women is being desired? Yep, I think I read that somewhere… and so it would follow that a man, in a committed relationship, who is pitching in with the housework and child-rearing, to allow more time for intimacy, is displaying to his wife, in a very practical, visual way, that he still desires her very much. I call that a win win for both husband and wife."
If you are reading this and you are a dad, ask yourself: Are YOU mentally sexy?
If you are a mom, ask yourself: Is this a good definition for mentally sexy?
This post is brought to you as part of the Fatherhood Friday community at The Dad Blogs. It's where all the cool dads are! You should take some time to come and visit to see what my brother fathers (and sister mothers) are talking about.
